Today, November 16, 2021 and tomorrow, November 17, 2021, will be Temporary Remote Instruction Days for Middle School and High School students (grades 6-12) due to a large number of staff who are ill and unable to work.
Fairview Elementary School will have in-person instruction today and tomorrow as usual. The switch to Temporary Remote Instruction at FMS/FHS will allow us the staffing necessary to continue to have elementary students in-person today and tomorrow.
Guidance received by school districts defines remote instruction as a method of instruction where teachers and staff facilitate learning for students through digital and non-digital strategies while students are in a location other than the school – likely from home – and where students and instructors are not physically present together in a traditional in-person setting, such as a classroom.
Students will have instructional assignments uploaded by their teachers in their Google classrooms today and tomorrow morning. Students are not required to meet with teachers online, however they must access their Google classrooms each day, complete their assignments on that day, and submit their work on that day in order to be counted present for attendance. Students who do not access, complete, and submit their work today and tomorrow will be counted absent for the day. This attendance change is specifically required as a result of SB 1. Students should contact their teacher if they need support or assistance in completing their assignments.
We understand this change can be a challenge for our students and families and apologize for any inconvenience.
